Obama Goes Low With All-Star First Pitch

President Barack Obama was true to his word: He didn't bounce it.

Obama's ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star game barely reached the plate Tuesday night. St. Louis Cardinals star Albert Pujols helped the president, reaching out to scoop the toss.

Obama had warmed up on the White House grounds Monday night, and
was determined his pitch would reach the plate on a fly.

    No anon., I do not, and will not, have to respect him, his wife, his position, or anything else related to him. Besides, who said anything about hating. I don't know him personally so I don't hate him. His policies on the other hand are fair game.

    Let him keep trying maybe one day he'll find something he's good at. How much of our tax money did this trip cost?

    I distinctly remember seeing GWB throwing the ball at another baseball game. What's the difference, "attention hawk"? At least he hasn't been on vacation ever since he took office!

    oh wow I can't WAIT to read the dim witted/racist/uneducated right wing "insults" sure to come from the comments section. Seriously people, grow up. If you don't like the way things are being run DO something about it, don't spend your tuesday evening whining on the WITN comments.

    Bush spent 2.7 years(!) (see huffington post dot com) at either Crawford, TX or Camp David, MD during his 8.0 years in office. Most of us would get 16 to 24 weeks(!) of vacation during 8 years. At least Obama is in front of the public, not hiding where no one can talk with him.

    this guy should be more focused on our economics, our protection, instead of traveling around trying to make a name for hisself, I have a name for him, but cant use it here.
